PVG/Disclosure - Introductory Session
When: 09.30 - 11.30, Tuesday 22 October 2019 Where: Caledonia House, Pentland Park, Saltire Centre, Glenrothes, KY6 2AL This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £25.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
This course will explore the principles of background checking of all types for both staff and volunteers. The course will provide information on:
General information on PVG and disclosure checking;
The different types of disclosure check available (e.g. Basic, Standard, Enhanced and PVG Scheme) and which roles require which type of check;
A brief look at how to go about processing checks (this is covered in more detail in the PVG signatory course);
Safe recruitment: risk assessment and other good practice measures.
